‘Bohemian Catsody’: The Queen Tribute That Might Haunt Your Dreams
The internet has finally done it; someone has created a cat take on Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and if you’re a dog person like this author, there’s a good chance you’re feeling mixed about it.
“Bohemian Catsody” is the product of YouTuber Shirley Șerban, a New Zealand woman who has a penchant for creating parody songs and has been really active in sharing these tunes since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you read Shirley’s “About” section on her channel, she seems like a lovely woman. However, the video below showing four different breeds of cats arranged in a staggered round singing lyrics like “Open the door, I’ll come, then I’ll go/Feed me now, don’t be slow” is rather jarring even when not in an altered state.
Shirley writes, in part, in the video’s description, “Cats are royalty. We are their willing servants.” Not quite sure about that one, but if you’re a cat person, watch the video below and have some fun. I am a dog person, but I’m not so cruel to deny cat people their joy.
